Holland is in the perfect position to win its first World Cup betting trophy ever. The only other times that the Dutch side has played in a World Cup odds final (’74, ’78) it’s had to play host countries Germany and Argentina on their own turf. That will not happen in this Sunday’s World Cup betting final and this will likely be the best opportunity that the Dutch national team has ever had to bring back a World Cup betting title.
In fact, the despite playing on neutral soil, the Dutch will most likely enjoy a definite advantage in terms of crowd support when they match up with either Germany or Spain in the World Cup betting final match in Johannesburg. South Africa is many miles away from Holland but there is rich historical connection between the two countries and the Boer farmers actually compose an important and longstanding segment of the society. Many of the locals as well as a huge contingency of visiting Dutch will be screaming wildly for the Clockwork Orange when the World Cup odds final match is played out.
Either possible opponent (Germany or Spain) presents a huge defensive challenge for the Dutch. Germany completely shut down the vaunted attack of Argentina and Spain has yet to concede a goal in the knockout stage of the World Cup betting. But Holland has one of the most talented attacks in the soccer betting action and it can get a goal in the opening minutes it will be in the driver’s seat.
Neither Spain nor Germany are built for playing from behind and the key to Dutch World Cup betting victory will getting an early goal and keeping the foot on the accelerator. Teams haven’t been able to do this against either the Germans or the Spanish, but if any team can do it it’s the Dutch side.
We’ve already seen what the Germans did to the trio of Messi/Teves/Higuian, the most talented bunch of strikers in the World Cup betting. But it wasn’t a matter of talent, but a lack of strategy that allowed the German side to shut down the Argentine side. The Dutch attack is much better organized and relies on much better ball movement, something that will keep its World Cup betting opponent on its toes.
And the Dutch trio of Van Persie, Robben and Sneijder need take a back seat to no one in terms of goal scoring ability. If this side goes into halftime with a lead, chances are very good that it will win the first World Cup betting title in Dutch history.
